Wage Protection Act Support

Your support for the Wage Protection Act - HB4324 means we're one step closer to passing this bill as a law so that Illinois workers can actually collect their wages in cases of wage theft. 

Working families shouldn't have to make impossible decisions to make ends meet. Low-wage workers shouldn't be given the runaround when it comes to their right to be paid in full and on time--they must be able to rely on their owed wages. HB4324, the Wage Protection Act - was introduced by Rep. Chris Welch (7th D) to give workers a tool to collect their stolen wages and prevent bad employers from evading their debts by transferring assets or filing for bankruptcy. This proposed bill builds off existing laws in the construction industry and would ensure all workers are entitled to their legal right and the most basic premise of our economy - that a day's worth of pay is owed for a day's worth of work.

    Receiving the wages one EARNED should be a given! When workers are cheated out of their rightful wages by unscrupulous employers, we should call that what it is: a CRIME. It is outright theft and workers should be given all the help our society can muster for them to collect their wages.

    It should be obvious that a “day’s worth of pay is owed for a day’s worth of work”. Employers need to be accountable. Employees need to be valued and PAID.

    Working people must be paid fairly for their work. All working people are entitled to fair representation for wages they are owed.
